Villa Fortuna is a palatial waterfront villa on the white sand beach of Half Moon Bay, Casa Fortuna is ideally located in front of a flourishing coral reef that offers some of the best snorkeling in Akumal.  Having fallen in love with Akumal, the owners have taken great care to make Villa Fortuna a sustainable eco friendly property so that they can help preserve this beautiful piece of paradise.

Designed in 2014 by one of Mexico’s top architects, Casa Fortuna offers 7000 square feet of modern living space with open, airy views of the pristine beach and azure sea.  Custom-built furnishings, commissioned art, a large gourmet kitchen, high-end speakers and an ample beachfront pool make this villa a stunning, stand-out property. Best of all, the villa boasts 6 spacious ocean facing bedrooms, each with a private balcony and full marble bath.  All bedrooms are also equipped with a 43” flat screen TV/DVD.

Two handsome mahogany dining tables seat up to 18 people each; offering plenty of dining capacity both indoors and out on the patio. 

From the spacious roof terrace, guests at Casa Fortuna can soak in the 360⁰ views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea to the east and the lush Mayan Jungle to the west.  They can also enjoy a night of quiet stargazing through a 5- inch aperture Celestron telescope. For those who prefer partying under the stars, the terrace also offers capacity for 25 people with comfortable furnishings, a built-in bar, and bath.

The patio offers a gas grill, seating areas in both sun and shade, a dining table for 16 and a poolside palapa with hammock. The tiled beachfront pool is large enough for swimming laps and includes built-in benches for relaxing afternoons in the water.  The pool can be heated upon request for an additional fee. 

Snorkeling gear is available for both adults and children to enjoy the reef which is home to a diverse range of marine life including tropical fishes, rays, and endangered sea turtles. In the late summer months, these turtles nest all along Half Moon Bay.  In fact, Akumal is a Mayan word meaning “Place of the Turtle” and many guests at Casa Fortuna have been lucky enough to see a huge mother turtle heave up onto the beach to lay her eggs or have watched by moonlight as hundreds of baby turtles erupted from their nest and scrambled back to the sea.

Casa Fortuna is conveniently located within easy walking distance of several excellent shops, restaurants and bars.  Guests may also sign-up for onsite bicycle rentals with our groundskeeper for safe, easy access to all the attractions in Akumal, including lagoons, nature centers, spas, dive centers and other local amenities. Akumal is a laid back eco-village and is the perfect base to explore Mayan ruins, cenotes, adventure parks, and the bustling towns of Playa del Carmen and Tulum.

Staying at Casa Fortuna for a week was a dream come true. It has a stellar location right on the beach, where you can go swimming or snorkel with the free snorkel gear provided onsite. If you’re looking for something closer, there’s also a private pool right outside the patio. The space is ridiculously large and comfortably fit 10 people. It has all the amenities that you want when you’re traveling in Mexico and living beachside, like a washer/dryer, water purifiers on each floor, and of course, hammocks everywhere. There is also a rooftop where you can enjoy the sound of the ocean on one side and the seemingly endless jungle on the other, with a telescope available for stargazing. The housekeepers are friendly and quick to respond to any questions you may have. Its location in Akumal is close enough where you can bike downtown (bikes are provided onsite) and a drive to Tulum is about ~30 minutes away. Can’t recommend this place enough and would be lucky to go back!

Fall asleep to the steady beat of gulf waves tumbling through your open balcony door. Watch the sunset and the moon rise from the comfortable rooftop patio. Get up early and walk 20 feet to hop in the warm gulf and scenic reefs. Enjoy myriad unique adventures of the Yucatan Peninsula all within a convenient distance. Many thanks to Carlos and Ruth for keeping the Villa spotless and well stocked with living essentials during our visit. Staying here is truly a great stroke of fortune!

My stay at Villa Fortuna was lovely. The house was pristine and came with everything I needed to live comfortably during my stay in Akumal. I particularly enjoyed watching sunsets on the roof--what a view! The location is great, and I really appreciated that bicycles were provided as that was a fun and convenient way to get around the area. I wish I could have stayed longer, and I can't wait to go back!

This is a beautiful property in a great location. Booking and communication with the rental agency and staff were great and we had everything we needed, including booking a private chef for Thanksgiving! Highly recommend this place if you want a high-end getaway with family or friends.

First trip to Akumal. Won't be the last. The position of the house was the best in half moon bay. Sunsets and nighttime stargazing from the roof was exceptional.

We just stayed here and this house is great. Its clean. Its private. Its safe. We set up a chef service and family was blown away. We have 13 people and everyone could hang together or there was plenty or private time in the big rooms. The team at I-Akumal is so great. Book with them and they help with transfers / chef / trips and make your vacation amazing.

It was a perfect set up for a family.
We could lay by the pool and just wander a few steps into Half Moon Bay to
snorkel. All of our family really appreciated just how well prepared and
comfortable this villa was. We all slept great and woke up to great coffee.
Our family had teenagers and grandparents and this worked well for all of us.
My parents had no problem moving around the villa and had easy access to the
beach and pool so I didn't have to worry about them being left behind. We
rented the bikes which I highly recommend if you are traveling with
teenagers. It gave them a little freedom to explore which was very helpful as
the whole family doesn't move at the same pace.  I just don't think we could
have found a more perfect spot for our family vacation. Can't wait to go back
next year!

semaine de rêve avec nos enfants et petits enfants. la maison est très vaste et bien aménagée. Les chambres sont immenses et ont toute un grand balcon coté mer. Propreté sans faille partout dans la maison. Carlos et Ruth sont très attentifs à nos demandes. Quelques appareils étaient non fonctionnels mais ont été rapidement remplacés. La seule déception que nous avons eu est la quantité d'algues sur la plage, c'est très désagréable et ca sent mauvais malgré qu'à tous les jours un homme peinait à tout ramasser sans y parvenir. Par contre, aussitôt cet amas d'algue traversé, nous nous retrouvons dans une eau cristalline, chaude et pleine de découvertes: poissons tortues et coquillages sur une très grande surface. Durant notre séjour, une tortue est venue pondre sur notre plage. Très belle semaine mémorable pour chacun de notre groupe de 13.
Manager response on 2022-07-05 - Response from Akumal Direct Reservations
Merci Guy! Nous sommes ravis que vous ayez apprécié votre séjour à la Villa Fortuna et que vous ayez pu découvrir la nidification des tortues pendant votre séjour. Nous attendons votre prochaine visite, faites-le nous savoir et notre équipe vous faire savoir quel est le meilleur moment pour de bonnes conditions de plage ;)

This was my first time staying in a property like this with a large party. I was extremely happy to have everything in place upon my arrival. For example, I ordered groceries and they were received the day of. I also ordered Chef Luis Martinez food preparation services with his assistant Erendira. That was an expense that was well worth the cost considering that they take care of all clean up and shopping for items. The house staff helped us with getting the kayaks and turning the power on in the early morning so we could get water running. The staff who manage the property were always in communication with me leading up to my stay. That's how I was able to coordinate most of the big ticket items prior to my arrival. There was additional info at the property in case I needed to reach them outside of business hours. And that was great to know since we did need their help with the power shut off. The seaweed was present on the beach front, but it didn't take away from the beauty of what was all around us. I am really happy with the entire experience and feel extremely lucky to have experienced Akumal. A pueblito that has the right amount of adventure, relaxation and shops.

Enjoyed our stay. We had an amazing time with my closest friends. The house was well-kept and plenty of space for 10 people! We loved the outdoor area and the pool and kayaks/paddleboards were such a treat. Akumal is a beautiful little town and I would happily return again and again.

Amazing Villa, great for large groups-BOOK IT!

I stayed in the Villa for 4 days with a group of 10.
The home is exactly as pictured and did not disappoint. The home is multi level, and every room has its own private bathroom.
I would recommend and say YES to anyone who is considering this property! You won't regret if.

We had a truly wonderful experience at Villa Fortuna and Akumal direct. The home is spacious and ideally situated -- a short and lovely bike ride or golf cart ride to town. The daily housekeeping services were exemplary and Ruth y Carlos were helpful in making sure the house and grounds were kept spotless.

We used Chef Daveed and his team for a handful of meals during our stay and our only regret was not using them more! From blended margaritas to handmade tortillas, each meal, whether breakfast, lunch or dinner was absolutely delicious.

While the location of the villa, housekeeping and chef services were all A+, there were some things that could be improved. The outdoor lounge chairs were in poor shape and the side entrance to the house should be tidied up when there are house guests. The bikes that come with the house are rusty and old, but served their purpose. Overall, this villa served us well (9 adults, 2 children) and we loved our stay in Akumal very much.

we were a family of nine that have traveled many times together with each other usually in all inclusive resorts. we enjoyed the common area of the house where we could all meet and visit and play cards. my husband and I love to cook but the kitchen could use some updates. The stove was difficult to light and the flame is quite low much like a camping stove. The grill was not much better. The knives used for chopping were all rather doll and difficult to use. We quickly decided that cooking at the home was not that feasible so we utilize the local restaurants. The bikes seem quite dated. The kayaks we had to go rob Peter to pay Paul as far as the plugs go call me back home . The beach itself is sandy and nice but once you hit the water you’re walking on very rough rocks making it somewhat untenable to snorkel right off the beach. The snorkeling gear at the house is rather old and dated. I guess the one thing that caught me the most off guard was at the house came with housekeeping services which I was not aware of and the tipping guidelines that weren’t spelled out from the onset. Carlos and Ruth were lovely people and very helpful and accommodating and the place was kept very clean. Location was great we were by several restaurants that we enjoyed. So the pros were we got to spend time together in a closer proximity then hotels afford. The cons or the suggestions were that the house needs updates the outdoor furniture is in disrepair and the cushions on the outdoor furniture were very worn. we felt very safe in Akumal. hope this review is helpful as the intention was to provide realistic feedback to manage expectations when renting this property.

Villa Fortuna is amazing!! It is everything the description says and more! The house managers, Carlos & Ruth couldn’t be more friendly, helpful, and willing to accommodate all requests!
I highly recommend Villa Fortuna for itself, the location, Half Moon Bay, Akumal and it’s proximity to everything the area has to offer.

A M A Z I N G. Villa Fortuna was great for our 12 guests. Two delicious restaurants close by and the chef service is definitely worth it! We rented a golf cart for a few days and used that to go into town, the ladies went to the spa - it was fabulous! We spent a day in Tulum (20 - 30 minute drive) which was awesome, as well as a yacht charter also outside of Tulum. This location is perfect for privacy and quiet enjoyment of the beach, while being close enough to go into Tulum and other surrounding areas as you wish. The house staff were kind and very helpful. The house was great - comfortable beds, great A/C, plenty of space! Came stocked with more than we expected in terms of kitchen ware. The grocery delivery service also rocks! Made our lives so much easier. Would recommend this house to any groups in the 10 - 14 person range! Lagoons and cenotes are also close by, or you can adventure out and explore cenotes further away - all super easy! We had no concerns with safety and everyone in our group had the best time.

Our vacation was amazing at Casa Fortuna. The pool is the perfect size and right overlooking the ocean. The house was immaculate. I highly recommend the chef service. We had lunches and dinners cooked and it turned from a beach vacation into a culinary vacation. The house is spacious and modern with tasteful decor. The rooftop deck was perfect for star gazing at night. Large family sing tables both inside and out. The family that caretakers the house do an amazing job. If you need anything they go above and beyond to make sure you’re taken care of and comfortable. Another great thing is that between the solar panels and generator, when electricity was down for the community for a couple days we didn’t even notice. Also, water in the community was turned off for a day or so and again because this house converts seawater into fresh water, we didn’t even notice. There were a few detractors. First, the seaweed problem is bad right now. It made the beaches pretty much unusable and although they spray for the smell it still leaves an unpleasant aroma. This appears to be a problem this year throughout the Caribbean (Florida, Cuba, Jamaica, Cancun etc). However snorkeling in the bay is still gorgeous. Also, make sure to wear shoes in the house, the tiles can be VERY slippery. Finally, the stove can be a little temperamental making it difficult to cook. However once you get the hang of it, it’s a minor inconvenience.

Fantastic house - great stay! 10/10

This place was fantastic - we've done many group trips over the years and this house is a perfect setup for a group of 12 (more if you have kids and don't mind them bunking with you). Every room is oceanview with terrace - that is a huge deal. Rooms are extremely large.

Main gathering areas are spacious with lots of room.

Things to note: There are neighbours and it is beachfront so people walk by the pool area frequently. But it's right on the beach! Also you need water shoes as it's rocky - but that means you can snorkel right off the beach.

Would like to see more lounge chairs by the pool (only 6) and extra outdoor lounge seating (again, only room for 6) - but otherwise was a fantastic rental!

Staff was excellent, property mgmt dealt with small septic issue (wasn't their fault - previous renters didn't treat adhere to rules for septics) - they quickly responded even though it was sunday - and confirmed several times if it was better or not. Excellent service.

Fantastic location!

We traveled as a multi-generational family. We enjoyed the numerous amenities this house provided. Lovely location right on the beach yet the yard and pool area seems very private. We biked and carted around the area and relied on transportation provided by the rental agency. David was great to work with. The food service was also a nice option... we hired Daveed's chefs twice and enjoyed the meals immensely. We used some of the house equipment -- floating devices, yard toys, life jackets for the cenote, kayak, etc. The beach is rocky, but lovely.

5 nights with 4 adult couples, stayed end of January 2021. House was very clean, Ruth and Carlos were great making sure everything was picked up and perfect! Very safe area, golf cart rental was a must. Groceries delivered before our arrival was a must! Beach is rocky, need shoes to walk along or swim!
